The third week in March is designated as National Poison Prevention Week to highlight the dangers of poisonings and how to prevent them. Every day, people can (and do) prevent poisonings. More than 2 million poisonings are reported each year to the 57 poison control centers across the country. More than 90% of those reported occur in the home. The majority of non-fatal poisonings occur in children younger than six years old. In addition, poisonings are one of the leading causes of death among adults.
